Usually on days with unusual weather (such as snow on St. Patrick’s Day in many places,) I turn to the Newseum for a collection of front pages. But, “Due to inclement weather, the Newseum will be closed Monday, March 17,” they announced on Facebook.

“No front page uploads either?” one woman asked.

Those fronts are up now, but it looks like most newspapers in snowy places chose to focus on other things today on their fronts (and I don’t blame them. It’s March 17.)

You can peruse the pages of many publications who had to shovel out this morning, though, including The Washington Post, The (Newark, N.J.) Star-Ledger and The (Wilmington, Del.) News-Journal.

Here are some Associated Press photos that also show little green on this St. Patrick’s Day.

There are a lot of shamrocks around mastheads today, but this one’s the winner so far.
